Book Review #1: The woodworker's guide to hand tools- Peter Korn

01-24-2013 06:40 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

This book is a great book. It is almost like a dictionary for handtools. The pictures are very detailed. You can look up almost any handtools and figure information out from how to use it to how to care for the tool. If you are just getting into hand tools I recommend getting a reference book. This is a great choice. If the video below will not play click here. for the video book review.

Many of these come from Google Books. You can read these books on-line using your web browser and down load them to your computer and save them there if you like. If yo...

Wood Art #8: Pictorial Webster's: Inspiration to Completion

04-04-2010 03:48 AM by Gary Fixler | 9 comments »

While not particularly woodworking, he uses wood in many of his jigs and clamps and presses. Too, he calls his operation “Quercus Press,” and Quercus, as we all know is the genus of the oak trees. It looks like the covers are glued over white oak boards as well. Moreover, though, this video is simply a maker’s dream. From the old linotype machine whirring and clanking away to line up type as he presses keys, to the vaults of old engravings he gained access to, to the many cl...
